Beautiful. I love your use of light (or lack thereof), in some pieces it reminds me of Rembrandt.

Who are ye, o deity whose most stunning of artworks hath suddenly appeared before me!
I actually cannot describe how amazing all your work it, I've just spent the past hour staring gormlessly at it...so much that it appears I've started speaking in Shakespearean English. An unfortunate side effect, but it's totally worth it. Congratulations on You.

I could stare and stare at your gallery all day. I have never seen work like this. Yes there are a lot of digital portraits around, but you breathe life into them.

It also helps that Ben C is sexy as hell...


But please, keep doing what you're doing. We can't get enough!!

I don't know if there's something wrong with my screen, but it looks a bit splotchy and weird in some places.

Yep your screen probably has unbalanced contrast. My dads computer has this problem and everything looks terrible on it. I actually plan on putting similar adjustments on my screen and repainting the areas in the shadows so it won't look SO bad on screens like these. And it wont change how it looks for most peoples screens... so sorry about that! Gonna fix it soon...

A little too dark for my screen (laptops can be crabby) but what I can see of the textures are stunning. The light on the nose and collar makes the skin and fabric look touchable.

Mind, to me he Sherlock always looks touchable, so I'm a bit biased ;)

Bring on the Sherlock, it's gonna be a looooong wait for series 3...

Fitting that it should look like a dragon eye as he is voicing the dragon in the upcoming Hobbit film : ) And again, you ruin me -_- so very beautiful, this piece is... no idea why I just spoke like Yoda O.O

The light, the extreme shadow... so very melancholy and wonderfully melodramatic in a sense that merges Sherlock's teenage-sulk-tendencies and his heartwrenchingly uber-emotionally-intelligent (though these are rare) moments.

You have such supreme skill; I am moved and piqued by each piece and never bored.
